Each month, EstesGroup rotates a client success story into this area to spotlight how we have helped our clients.
EstesGroup worked with a defense manufacturer of satellite technologies to implement an ERP solution. EstesGroup sold and implemented a full ERP suite, then customized the interface to their DCAA accounting systems. In replacing their legacy software, EstesGroup saved valuable cycles in delivery and reduced inventory while linking all aspects of the business together: sales, finance, manufacturing, delivery, and operations. Lately, we have installed a separate CRM in each of their parent company’s divisions and linked the CRM to the actual order and manufacturing process, providing a real time window in to what can be delivered.
